Re: Nursing past 1 yr, DH not understand
When my son was about 4mo my husband went to a conference for work. When he returned we had this conversations:
DH: I ran into (insert name) and his wife and son. She is still nursing and he is 16 months old!
Me: Uh-huh . . .
DH: Isn't that kind of old?
Me: Not really. WHO recommends nursing until at least 2.
DH: Oh. Interesting.
I would suggest finding someone your DH likes to hang out with that also happens to be nursing a toddler (or has a wife nursing a toddler) and make sure the subject comes up. Then he will know someone else that is doing it AND the experts recommend it, so it must be normal. Good Luck.
My little man was born 12/17/2010.
